    How do you cook bagles?

    I was at the grocery store and they were out of my favorite flavor of bagle..
    So back when I could go to Publix and that happened I just got the frozen ones, the Deli got them that way and just heated them in the oven..
    So I said, Well, do you have them frozen?
    It was the store manager who happened to be there and after about a half hour of him in the freezer,, out he came with my bagles.. Except..
    They were only Dough circles..
    Doh!
    Ok I charged ahead ,, let 6 thaw and rise.. excetp they really didnt.
    So I baked em, at 350.. anywho I mad little tractor wheels or Mini bagles so heavy you could use them for a spare tire...

    Do you boil them first?? Anyone know I have 6 more..
    Let's experiment

    OOps I think what I really have are BAGELS!!

    Maybe we can cook bagles next time!

    I used to work at a Subway and they would put the bread in something called a Proofer. Proofer - large cavernous object, kinda like an oven, only it produces humid conditions.

    Maybe they need to be proofed first so the dough will rise?

    Just jam it into a toaster then when the toaster spits it out grab the bagle and slap some meat and cheese on it and eat it before you have a chance to look at it. (It works for me... glug glug glug)

    LMAO, I am sorry surreal, this is just too funny, I saw the title and im like thinking, well slice them in half and toast them. Then I clicked the link and relized there was more to it than that.

    I am not sure on that, on how to raise the dough, I would probably try turning on the oven so the stovetop heats up and then putt them on a cookie sheet covered lightly wiht a towel and let them raise for a hour or 2. then bake them.

    that is what i would try. so it gets some of the warmth from the oven but not be cooking. dunno about a microwave tho. i have defrosted meet too long and its practically cooks them. so mic probly be bad idea, dunno.

    DOH! there ya go,, at least an hour.. hmm I was impatient I waited 15 minutes..
    Geez Neo, you can tell my Suzie Homemaker days are way behind me! Sheesh and I used to grind grain an make bread that way!

    Still aside from the rising,, hmm I may need to search google..

    Man you can find anything!


    Bagels are boiled in water and then baked. Some people add malt or baking soda to their boiling water to enhance the bagel's flavor; follow the instructions on the recipe you are using to discern which (if any) extra flavoring should be added. We used fresh boiling water with no added flavoring. Slide the bagels into the boiling water, being careful not to let them stick to each other. Don't crowd the bagels in the pot; overcrowding will cause the water to cool down and the bagels to stick together. Generally, two or three bagels at a time is appropriate.


    5 Let the bagels cook until they have expanded in size and underside appears cooked (1 to 3 minutes) then carefully turn them with a slotted spoon or spatula. Let them cook for another minute or two; until the bagel is cooked evenly on its exterior.

    6 The bagel will puff up and the center will be nearly closed when it is ready to be removed from the boiling water. It should be off-white in color and have some blisters just below the surface.

    7 Arrange toppings on plates; we topped our bagels with poppy seeds. While the bagels are wet, dip them onto the toppings then arrange them on a lightly oiled baking sheet.

    Bake the bagels in preheated oven until golden brown, about 15 minutes. After 10 minutes, check the bagels and loosen them from the baking sheet if they are sticking. Once they are done, place them on a rack to cool




    Here's the linky in case anyone wants to go Cujo Chef!

    Thumbs up

    Very nice link. I like light bagels. The New York bagels are so heavy, dense if you know what i mean. Bagels should be light, and toasted with butter or cream cheese and full fried egg with hot coffee - my idea of a good breakfast.

    The link has some good soup ideas. Nothing beats a good wholesome soup (Manhattan Clam Chowder- red base) in this weather. Preceeded by cold beer, that is.

    And Surreal, you'd promised to post BBQ chicken recipe before you went on vacation. We're still waiting

    Dude, NO. It's definitely not that criss whatever. It's shaped like a doughnut only like bread. Very popular here in New York at breakfast time. Think of a doughnut shaped bread.

    Do they have like doughnuts down there?

    Actually, we're not that advanced - can't even get cable where I am..

    ... but we do have flushing loos - ours are apparently superior to yours according to these folk...

    You get bagels from a Jewish deli...period.

    They are supposed to heavy. Whoever said bagels should be light doesn't know what they are talking about. If they are light, then they are not bagels.
